"A Leaf From The Tree of Songs" by Adam Christianson

When harpers once in wooden hall
A shining chord would strike
Their songs like arrows pierced the soul
Of great and low alike Aglow by hearth and candleflame
From burning branch 'ot ember
The mist of all their music sang
As if to ask in wonder
Is there a moment quite as keen Or memory as bright As light and fire and music (sweet)
To warm the winter's night?
